Lyrics

We All Laugh (In the Same Language)
©2005 by Marla Lewis
Marla362@optonline.net

Carlos says "Hola"
Sun Lee says "Nee-how."
Chantal says "Bonjour"
Mario says, "Ciao."
Sasha says, "Pri-vyet"
Thomas says "Jambo"
Sarala says, "Mah-rah-ba"
Kaitlyn says, "Hello" (but)

We all laugh in the same language
We all love to learn and play
Our hearts beat in the same rhythm
Round the world, we're all the same
We all cry when we feel sorrow
We all love our family
We all pray for a better tomorrow
Round the world, you and me

Raj rides a rickshaw
Nigel takes the bus
Gabe drives a bobsled
Cynda walks through dust
Early each morning
Just like me and you
Children all around the world
Are on their way to school! (oh)

Chorus

(Bridgeï??)
We're Ebony, ivory
Bronze and gold and tan
We're citizens of Planet Earth
A Family of Man
